I know the parameter mem-max sets the maximum RAM that can be allocated to a domU.
Beside this limit, VM has to be recreated with required memory size.

Is it possible to set the mem-max parameter without recreating VM?
xm max-mem seems to work but in fact, has no effect (at least on my debian Lenny dom0)

If not possible to dynamicly change max-mem, Is it possible/safe/clever to set max-mem to the maximum amount of RAM the dom0 can allocate (total RAM - minimum dom0 RAM).
